I always enjoyed visiting with Rochelle and Woody. The Loge reunions were fun to see all the relatives. One time especially stuck out when Paul, Dean (4 1/2) and I were at the Faribault County Fair. Dean had gotten separated from us. Paul and I were looking for him. Over the loudspeaker came a message to come to take office. We got there and Rochelle was there and Dean. They had brought him to the office and Rochelle knew who he belonged to. That was a very happy moment. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Her decorating skills were so amazing-from the way she wrapped Christmas packages to the beautiful frosted white Christmas trees to her eye for design elements that she put into the house-What talents!
